(I blind-carbon copied this to www/opera7 maintainer.)

The www/opera7 package currently ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM=      NetBSD-*-i386.

But the distfile is for Linux and i386. I assume it will work under
Solaris, FreeBSD and others providing Linux compatibility.

And I know it works under Linux. I don't have a patch for
www/opera7/Makefile, but this is how I used opera under Linux

/usr/pkgsrc/distfiles/opera-7.21-20031013.1-static-qt.i386.rpm | cpio -d -i

/tmp/pkgsrc/www/opera7/work.antelope/usr/bin/opera --binarydir

So rpm2cpio can be used to extract to WRKSRC. Then it could be installed
like ${PREFIX}/lib/opera/plugins and
${PREFIX}/libexec/opera/7.21-20031013.1 and then a wrapper script can be
installed to ${PREFIX}/bin/opera.

Does anyone else use opera7 under non-NetBSD?
